Attendance includes arriving to school on time.


Punctuality is very important as it sets the standards later in life. As Parents/Carers you have a duty to ensure your child attends school and on time. Arriving for school late can mean:


  • Missing important announcements during registration
  • Missing early morning work.
  • Embarrassment at coming into class when class has already started work.
  • Missing part of the lesson which can be difficult to catch up on.
  • A poor attendance record.
  • A reluctance to go to school.


It also disrupts the lesson and other children’s learning. If your child arrives after the register has closed without prior agreement, they will be marked as unauthorised absence. Please see our school attendance policy in the "Attendance Policies and Documents" section for details of timings of the school day.
